Dash Core for Fedora Linux
...wallet, node, and masternode
EOL of Dash Core RPM development
The Dash developer community will be moving towards containerized deployment
of nodes and masternodes. Therefore, I will cease building RPMs when v18 rolls out (relatively soon). I appreciate all of you who have found my builds useful.
ETA? Unknown at this time.
OLD NEWS: IMPORTANT REPOSITORY NOTICE
This repository will no longer host RPMs or SRPMs. Due to github quotas, I am ending storage of the
.src.rpmconvenience files in all (or most) of my build repositories. You can duplicate my builds with files provided within this repository and with upstream source
.tar.gzfiles. If you can read an RPM spec file, you should be good to go.
For the rest of you who simply want to use the application, follow the instructions for installation of the binary package and enjoy.
Supported builds and other notices:
- For both Dash Core and Dash Masternode Tool (DMT), I no longer supply packages for RHEL/CentOS.
- For Dash Core, use the provided systemd configuration. This makes nodes near bullet-proof, even on Fedora.
- Dash Masternode Tool: DMT will remain Fedora-only! except for test builds.
- Keep up with Fedora's release schedule: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases
Fedora upgrades are easy (see available documentation in the "documentation" folder).
Dash (Digital Cash) is an open-source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency with an emphasis on serving as an efficient platform for payments and decentralized applications. Dash offers a form of money that is portable, inexpensive, divisible and fast. It can be spent securely both online and in-person with negligible transaction fees. Dash offers instant transactions by default (InstantSend), more-fungible transactions (CoinJoin), and operates its network with a model of self-governance and self-funding. This decentralized governance and budgeting system makes it the first-ever successful decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).
Dash is open source and the name of the overarching project. Learn more at https://www.dash.org/

This github repository is used to develop and maintain Dash natively built and packaged for Fedora Linux.

Binary (executable) RPMs
Binary (executable) RPMs are pre-built for you (from these sources) and are available through external repositories that your packaging system can understand. This makes deploying and maintaining Dash on a Fedora system dependable, more secure, and oh so very simple. This is arguably the simplest way to deploy and manage a Dash Wallet, Node, or Masternode.

These packages have been successfully built and tested, but I lay no claim that they are absolutely free of any bugs in the code, default configuration, documented configuration, or in the builds or how those builds are deployed/installed.
These packages have been used by myself and others for years at this point, but in the end, users must assume the risks associated to both community built and deployed packages and, of course, any cryptocurrency funds managed by this software. I.e., These will probably work for you, but I can't be liable for any loss of funds or damages associated to this software.
